Reds' Bruce sits with sore right heel


GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Right fielder Jay Bruce was scratched from Monday's starting lineup in the Reds' 5-2 win over the Brewers about 90 minutes before first pitch. Bruce reported having a sore right heel.

Reds manager Dusty Baker, who replaced Bruce with Denis Phipps, did not believe the injury would be serious.

"He'll be all right in a couple of days," Baker said. "It was more precautionary than anything. You don't want it to linger. This time in spring, if they feel anything, we take them out."

Through two spring games, Bruce is 0-for-4.
